Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad - New engine replacement

2900 Point Nepean Road, Blairgowrie, 3942

In the 2017-18 State Budget, the Victorian Government allocated $40,000 for new engine upgrades for Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad's Kirby Marine search-and-rescue vessel.

Situated in the local government area of Mornington Peninsula Shire, the Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad plays an important role in the safety of water users in the local area, by responding to marine emergencies and raising community awareness about marine safety.

The Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad received two new Suzuki engines (300h/p) for its Kirby Marine vessel, which are now in use.

The engine upgrades will ensure the search-and-rescue vessel meets commercial standards, enabling the committed and dedicated volunteers to continue to service their local community and assist other emergency service agencies.

The Marine Search and Rescue office within Emergency Management Victoria is in regular communication with the Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad to ensure volunteers are provided with the vessels and equipment they need to keep their local community safe on the water.
